Court of Appeals Opinion

Opinion Number:
Date Published:
Nov 06, 2019

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Black Hawk County, Linda M. Fangman and Bradley J. Harris, Judges.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Tabor, P.J., and Mullins and May, JJ.  Opinion by May, J.  (9 pages)

            Michael Dawson appeals his convictions for various drug crimes, eluding, and driving while barred.  OPINION HOLDS: The district court did not abuse its discretion in not ruling on pro se motions that did not articulate claims with any clarity.  Sufficient evidence supports Dawson’s possession conviction.  We preserve Dawson’s ineffective-assistance claims for possible future postconviction-relief proceedings.
